    Globe Telecom Inc. has upgraded its mobile network in key provinces in Luzon.

    In a statement, Globe said it modernized its network to fourth generation (4G) Long Term Evolution (LTE) to bring a better mobile experience to customers in key locations in Aurora and Sorsogon.

    Aside from Baler, Globe has upgraded its network capacity in Dipaculao, Maria Aurora and San Luis in Aurora; and in Donsol, Castilla, Gubat, Matnog, Pilar and Sorsogon City in Sorsogon province.

    For the past three months, the company has made 13 site upgrades in the four towns of Aurora.

    Globe said it also modernized 15 sites in Sorsogon, making 4G LTE now fully available in the five towns and in the capital city of Sorsogon.

    Baler and Donsol are expected to fully experience the migration to 4G LTE, the new standard of mobile data, within the first two weeks of April, the company added. The remaining areas will also get to experience the improvement within the month.– Myla Iglesias
